Starting this week, new ground has been broken on the first segment of singletrack trail going in between Mirror lake and Edmond lake in the Chugiak/Peters Creek/Eklutna area. Plan by the Chugach Mountain Bike Riders (CMBR) is to construct approx 7 miles of new MTB singletrack this fall throughout a Municipality of Anchorage parkland parcel (accessible from mirror lake park) which have an existing (and seldom used) set of vintage XC-ski trails.
CMBR received approval and a $$ grant to help kick-off the trail construction and the trail contractor (ptarmigan ptrails) is doing a great job of design and rough-in of the singletrack with mini-excavator and mini-dozer power equipment. Final hand-equipment brushing, raking/grading, and compaction of the trails is via a community volunteer effort. Around 30-40 local volunteers showed up this past Wednesday for the fist weekly work party and we got nearly 1 mile of fantastic new singletrack put in thus far.
Plan is to keep weekly work parties going throughout this fall (Wednesdays at 6:30) to follow-up behind the contractor progress. Feel welcome to show up and help contribute to creating a new singletrack system for the area! (tools provided)
